Reel Life: WA Film Industry News January 2022

'The Godfather' 'The Godfather'

Revelation Perth International Film Festival never stops!

2022 marks our 25th year and we are celebrating our silver anniversary by working toward a range of new initiatives for 2022 which we’d love you to be part of either as a sponsor or donor. Any donations are 100 per cent tax deductible and all funds through donations or sponsorships are from ethical sources with social justice, equality and the environment at the front of mind. For 2022, your donation or support will contribute toward any one of our suite of activities of your choice including the film festival, XR:WA and the WA Screen Culture Awards. We’re also currently developing our own production fund for WA screen artists from all disciplines, and a youth film fest component run by people considerably younger than ourselves. Head to our website for further details.

International Call For Entries
These haven’t stopped over the holidays and films are coming in thick and fast – and we’re loving it. We’ve got pictures coming in from the four corners of the planet and of all types. We strongly advise any and all filmmakers to get their entries in while we’re still forming the programme – now is when the tone of the international creative community is starting to take shape in the eyes of our programme team. We’d love to take a look at your film and see what place it may have alongside all your creative comrades. More info at our website, entries close 1 April 2022 (and that’s not an April Fool’s joke!).

Our very own streaming service housed and developed in WA – RevStream – is powering along with a collection of brand-new titles about to be announced. We’ve had a huge amount of interest from audiences, filmmakers, distributors and sales agents nationally and internationally and we’re super pleased with the way it’s looking. With nudging 200 feature films and feature documentaries plus another 200 or so short films, there’s nothing like it around – and it’s fair to filmmakers! The platform is also developing the biggest access resource of Western Australian films via its Made In WA section with more than 100 titles available to view by film lovers the world over.
